Should lazy overweight people be given dogs?
What I have noticed was people are willing to walk further with a dog on the leash than they ever would alone. People I know who would not walk one quarter mile to a market, fast food establishment, or mini mart; they would take the car or they would not go. Put a dog on a leash and they will walk a good half of a mile behind the animal; maybe without thought. To get those overweight people who hate walking and are lazy wouldn’t it be smart to get them a dog so they will be forced to walk twice a day?
